I think we wear our Christopher Hitchens memorial pins and a smile.
StyledbyShawn, your jacket is much too tight and short - you should try sizing up. You might think the shoulders are wide, but they aren't - the divots are there due to strain at the armholes, which means they are far from sitting correctly. That's probably due to chest being too tight, and also because your shoulders seem to slope and pitch forward more than the jacket's. Sizing up sometimes alleviates these problems, and helps making the jacket look smoother. You should also try to find something with less waist suppression.
Hello, I've tried to size up in multiple brands but it always gives me that dreaded "sack" look. I defiantly think some issues with the fit can be fixed. I am losing some weight and with a bit more weight loss I think a lot of the issues you speak about will be corrected. I took out the ridiculous amount of shoulder padding in the sport coat and the issue of the divots has been fixed. I am also going to Lenten the sleeves and tailor the trousers. When this is done I will post before and after pictures. Thanks for the advice!
Positive: I really like the colours / patterns of your outfit :)
Hmmm: Pocket square colour/shape It could be dark reds, maroons, and browns patterned silk puff.
negative: Jacket is much too short and too tight, Shirt sleeves are too short, trousers have a very low rise.
Thanks I am glad you liked the pattern and color scheme, the sport coat is now being put through some alterations.
Best not to boast of one's indignities, I say. But I digress. What I actually wanted to say was I like your suit. You've had some beatings on here now and again for your prominent roped shoulders but I think they're beautiful. I like your work in general, your crazier shoulders in particular, and the suit in your post quite a lot. That's all.
First time posting here, tried something colorful today. I'm trying to figure out the best way to take pictures with my phone, so bear with me. I know it seems like the lapels are extending beyond the shoulder in the first picture, but I can assure you that it's just the angle/pose.
